About the Book

Aspiring engineers need a text that prepares them to use thermodynamics in professional practice. Thermodynamics instructors need a concise textbook written for a one-semester undergraduate course—a text that foregoes clutter and unnecessary details but furnishes the essential facts and methods.

Thermodynamics for Engineers, Second Edition continues to fill both those needs. Paying special attention to the learning process, the author has developed a unique, practical guide to classical thermodynamics. His approach is remarkably cohesive. For example, he develops the same example through his presentation of the first law and both forms of the second law—entropy and exergy. He also unifies his treatments of the conservation of energy, the creation of entropy, and the destruction of availability by using a balance equation for each, thus emphasizing the commonality between the laws and allowing easier comprehension and use.

This Second Edition includes a new chapter on thermodynamic property relations and gives updated, expanded problem sets in every chapter. Accessible, practical, and cohesive, the text builds a solid foundation for advanced engineering studies and practice. It exposes students to the "big picture" of thermodynamics, and its streamlined presentation allows glimpses into important concepts and methods rarely offered by texts at this level.


1. Concepts, Definitions, and the Laws of Thermodynamics, 2. Properties of Pure Substances, 3. Mass Conservation and the First Law of Thermodynamics, 4. Second Law of Thermodynamics and Entropy, 5. Exergy (Availability) Analysis, 6. Vapor Power Systems, 7. Thermodynamic Property Relations, 8. Principles of Energy (Heat) Transfer

About the Author

Kaufui Vincent Wong grew up in Malaysia and came to the United States in 1973. As a youngster, he wished to be an engineer because of his passion for mathematics, which was accomplished when he obtained the bachelor’s degree with honors in mechanical engineering at the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1973. He obtained his PhD at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, in 1976. His wish to teach engineering students from all over the world came true when he became a faculty member at the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, in 1979. In 2000, he published his first book for engineering students. In 2003, he published his second textbook for graduate engineers. He has authored and coauthored over 160 technical papers. In the past decade, he has broadened his teachings by using mass media, including YouTube. He accomplished his personal goal of visiting all seven continents in 2001 when he completed his trip to Antarctica.
